Ms Mashawi said some areas in region three have not yet received any rains to date.

The met department also urged motor vehicle drivers to drive cautiously as visibility will be poor due to the rains.

The department reminded people not to attempt to cross flooded rivers and streams and to avoid taking shelter under trees during thunderstorms to avoid being struck by lightning.
